A delightful film visually and a Renaissance experience for Juliet [Giulietta Masina]. Wikipedia... Giulietta (Giulietta Masina) explores her subconscious and the odd lifestyle of her sexy neighbor, Suzy (Sandra Milo), as she attempts to deal with her mundane life and her philandering oppressive husband (Mario Pisu). As she increasingly taps into her desires (and her demons) she slowly gains greater self-awareness leading to independence. Topics: Federico Fellini, Giulietta Masina, Italian cinema
Encolpius and Ascilto sojourn through Nero's Rome in a Krazy Kat patchwork of disjointed surreal episodes. Fellini based this confusing cinematic treat on the fragmented Petronius narrative of the same name..."Satyricon". Excess and debauchery are bywords for this difficult, subjective film.
